    IF they were going to beat protesters and the officer was under cover, would not leaving him be while they beat others blow his cover?

    Not that they should be beating anyone.

    So what you're saying is they had to beat him so as not to blow his cover? If we all have lumps, but Gary doesn't have a scratch, it might mean Gary is on the take. :D

    Only if they knew who he was and knew he was undercover.

    But St Louis is big enough that they likely did NOT know him. In which case he (along with everyone else who got beaten) have a serious case of police brutality to pursue.

    Interestingly, I watched an episode of JAG last week from the early 2000s about a guy at Guantanamo who was being taken for "advanced interrogation" and resisted so he was beaten into a coma by the Marine guards. Turned out he was an Army investigator working under cover.

    And that is why show like JAG are just that, TV Shown and the reason that I do not watch quasi Military law enforcement shows like Jag and NCIS, because they actually have a very anti-military theme.

    As that was my last duty assignment on active duty, I will try to put your mind at ease, the guards at GTMO, be them Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, or Coast Guard do not conduct interrogations of detainees and never have, we “guarded” them. We also were not even physically present during interrogations, but were close buy.

    In regards to that episode, which I have not seen, it would be impossible for anyone to go undercover. There is no way they would trust that person. He would need to have a spot on and perfect accent and dialect, he would need to know just about everybody in “his” village, valley and province and other people would have to know him too, and not that he just showed up six weeks ago, he would have to know every local custom, who did he fight with during the Soviet invasion or who his father fought with. Who are his family and people would also have to know them as well. Nope, not ever going to happen. Especially after the CIA moved away from HUMINT (Human assets on the ground) and moved to SIGINT and IMINT (signal intelligence and image intelligence, Radio comms/Cell phones and satellite imagery) back in the 1970s under President Carter.


    Other fun facts about GTMO…

    The Detention Center was pre-fabricated in the US and transported to GTMO by barge.

    The Detention Center was modeled on an existing facility in the State of Michigan.

    I think shows with any quasi-experts should be ignored. I still laugh at how MRI machines are portrayed in movies, like the "on-off" button for the magnet (the magnet is always on).

    Well, maybe...

    And the reason for covering it up and lying to the federal investigators?

    That should be a given...
    It was all in good fun.

    What disgusted me about this all along is, why are they planting undercovers masquerading as protesters in the first place? I have an idea: how about not doing that?
